Doctor claims you should never sleep naked – here’s why

A doctor has claimed it is not a good idea to sleep naked and the reason why is pretty bizarre.

Posting on TikTok, Dr Anthony Youn, who works as a plastic surgeon in the US, said you shouldn’t sleep in the nude because people fart during the night and if they are not wearing clothes they will spray tiny amounts of poo onto the bed and onto anyone they share a bed with.


Why you should never sleep without underpants! #learnontiktok #tiktokpartner #sleep #shart #fart

He said: “The average person passes gas 15-25 times a day and this can happen while you are sleeping and a scientific study proved that every time you pass gas you are spraying a tiny amount of faecal material.

“This is true even if it’s not a sh**t. The same study shows that your tighty whities will catch all of these particles.

“So for the sake of your bed partner, please sleep with your underwear on.”

He then clarified in the comments: “For women, if your gynecologist tells you to sleep without underwear then listen to them.

“For guys – put your tighty whities on before bed!”

Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 10 million views and received almost 700,000 likes.

Reacting to it, people were confused and found the advice hilarious.

One person joked: “15-25 times a day? At least I overachieve in one area.”

Another wrote: “My bed my choice.”

A third said: “My husband and I will just keep air s****ing on each other I guess.”

And a fourth said: “I’m just marking my territory.”

Food for thought.
